Saturday night inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, one of the most anticipated heavyweight championship showdowns in recent memory will take place as WBC champion Deontay Wilder defends his title against former heavyweight king Tyson Fury.
It was then that Wilder's unhappiness began to build, and when they stood for their face-off he angrily shouted at Fury, who remained relaxed as he shouted back until his promoter Frank Warren got between them in an attempt to calm the situation.
"He knows he's going to lose". They don't even deny it.
"He looked very nervous, I didn't instigate that, he did".
Wilder, inches from Fury's face, was yelling at him, over and over, "I'm gonna knock you the f-- out, I promise you!" "He felt that he needed to scream and shout at me and do all that sort of stuff to try start a bit of a tussle".
In addition to this, it's fair to say that the fighters Fury faced, Francesco Pianeta and Sefer Seferi, were hardly boxers of, or near, Deontay Wilder's standard.
Wilder and Fury were facing off in Los Angeles before the press, and when the trash-talking got heated, the two became physical with one another as everyone looked on. Fighting's all I've ever done. Now he has a bit of swag about him, but it's not genuine, it's fake.
"This is my time". The SHOWTIME PPV undercard features unified 154-pound world champion Jarrett Hurd returning to take on Jason Welborn, Cuban heavyweight slugger Luis Ortiz facing-off against Travis Kauffman and rising heavyweight Joe Joyce battling Joe Hanks. Let us know through comments below.
"He didn't beat Klitschko; Klitschko beat himself".
"He's only got confidence because Klitschko didn't throw no punches, that will give you confidence - if you've got a punching bag in the ring".
